Michael Carrick admits he is unsure if he will stay on amid Ralf Rangnick’s expected appointment as Man United interim boss… with caretaker boss unwilling to get ‘distracted’ ahead of Chelsea clash

  • Michael Carrick was named Manchester United caretaker boss last weekend

  • Ralf Rangnick has agreed terms on a six-month contract as United interim boss
  • Carrick insists he has not given thought as to whether he will stay under German 











Michael Carrick insists he has not ‘really had time to think’ about whether he will be staying as part of the Manchester United coaching staff, with Ralf Rangnick expected to be named interim boss.

The 63-year-old German coach – who is currently is head of sports and development at Lokomotiv Moscow – has agreed a six-month contract to take over at Old Trafford until the end of the season.

But speaking ahead of United’s trip to Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday, Carrick insisted he had not thought about life beyond the game against Thomas Tuchel’s men. 

‘I think as you can appreciate this week’s been a busy one already and I haven’t really had time to think,’ Carrick said.

‘I haven’t given it much thought, I am preparing the team the best I can and I’ve given everything I can. Anything after Sunday is not in my thoughts at the moment.

‘For me, to be sitting here talking about too far ahead… my thoughts are on the game on Sunday.

‘It has to be, coming in this week and having a laser focus on two games, the challenges it focuses, I can’t get distracted by anything else, as it will take care of itself in the coming days and weeks ahead.’
